Rev. Hannah, Rev. Mary-Lou and Pat have been busy thinking about how they can share Worship with us while we aren’t all in school together. They have made this video to share an Open the Book story, a prayer and a song with us all.
Please see the Term Dates for 2020-2021 here:
We have put together a video showing the procedures that will be in place when students start returning to school, both inside and outside of the school building.
Please share this with your child to prepare them for how school now looks and the new rules that will be in place.
It was a very windy day when it was recorded so please turn up the volume to high.
It is the end of a very different half term at Bomere Heath CE Primary School. We can now reflect on what we have all achieved and say thank you to many others.
As you know, school has been open to a small number of pupils, who have been working hard all half term with the staff.
We would like to say well done and thank you to all pupils for their hard work, resilience and determination to complete their home learning. We know it is hard at the moment, but we must continue to find the positives and stay safe.
We would also like to say thank you for the support given by the parents and carers of our school. We know it has been a challenge in so many ways, but we fully appreciate your communication, teaching and understanding.
A prayer for family life
God of compassion,
whose Son Jesus Christ, the child of Mary,
shared the life of a home in Nazareth,
and on the cross drew the whole human family to himself:
strengthen us in our daily living
that in joy and in sorrow
we may know the power of your presence
to bind together and to heal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We have been asked to place this letter on the website for all parents and carers to read:

We have received some very useful leaflets from BEAM, who are operated by The Children’s Society and offer young people the chance to talk with a practitioner about managing their feelings.
We urge you to read the leaflets, as they include helpful ideas about talking to your child about coronavirus and managing transitions.
